I love a lot of the programming on 2.1 even though I hate CBS mismanagement and miscommunication with us the viewers. I also love PBS.
I'm not sure how old you are, but I am 57 - a BIG sci fi fan.
If you are too young, you may have nothing to compare what's on tv
today vs say, what was on in the 60's, when there was no cable or many channels - only 3 major ones - that's all u needed - & all free.
& when I think of CBS, the 1st thing that pops into my head is THIS show - especially THIS episode. The theme music is unforgettable & so unique - done by the incomparable John Williams who did Star Wars. This episode & music is FOREVER in my head - geez - that ship & that robot!http://www.hulu.com/watch/170/lost-i...0,vepisode,1,0
That's the problem with many tv shows & even movies today - many have virtually no real unique theme music on the opening AND CLOSING credits. NO creativity!! & any music used throughout is hardly unique.
But when you watched 60's shows, especially the ORIGINAL star trek & what's below you knew what show it was immediately from the music thoughout!!! Sci fi overload in the 60's - 1971:
The longest opening in tv history? great theme musichttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=My_85FhMat8

Unfortunately, the irwin allen shows got silly after the 1st season cause they had to compete with campy Batman 1966.
